Hotels

Staying in a hotel offers a full range of comforts and ameneties and the myriad different options on offer these days means that a hotel rarely equates to a huge, identikit block, cramming the maximum guests in whilst offering nothing but a bed and the minimum of character and welcome. We feature a huge range of hotels of all shapes and sizes, from bustling urban boutique properties to charming, traditional hotels in stunning countryside locations (see below) - all of which do their part to minimise the environmental impact of tourism.

As a mainstay of tourist accommodation the world over, there has been much done in the hotel sector to go green: find out about pioneering urban eco-hotels in greentraveller founder Richard Hammond's blog post, and find out which properties made the Green Travel List, both environmentally friendly hotels in the UK and Ireland and green hotels across the rest of Europe and the world.

Find out how to get to hotels across Europe and beyond using our Journey Planner, and check out a great selection of eco-friendly hotels that you can reach by train and ferry below - from spa hotels in the Lake District and on the Cornish Coast to luxury hotels in the Irish countryside and seclusion in the mountains of Northern Spain.
